Ballinesker Beach

Ballinesker is the beach where Steven Spielberg shot the film “Saving Private Ryan” in 1997 and is covered in soft, wind blown sand.

This beautiful and accessible beach is the perfect spot for bird watching, as it it close by to Wexford Wildfowl Reserve, and also for collecting stunning sea shells.

The beach boasts a Blue Flag award and is one of many Wexford beaches to do so. The Blue Flag Award is presented to beaches and marinas with excellent water quality and which achieve high standards in a wide range of other criteria including environmental education, management of the environment, safety and other services.
